drop the world

everything is just falling into place.  the planets are aligned, and i’ve been so happy for the past two weeks or so.  i also don’t see it changing anytime soon so that’s a +.  2 and a half days of classes this week, and then a bit of a break and a bit of work and a bit of fun.

just thuggin out in the dirtay gham.  finally some new photos and an overdue trip to photoshops to drop off some random undeveloped rolls of film- SO EXCITED, who knows what gems they may contain.  roasting a chicken tonight- taking a trip to my miniature heaven.  friday was oh so much fun.  can’t even put it in words.  lemon stings, wu-tang clan, etc. etc.

not to be terrible or anything- but there are so many ridiculous people in coffee shops.  people who steal seats, who sing, who howl, and who are plain out wretched.  i try not to feel uncomfortable, but sometimes its really hard not to.  arabica should not be polluted with the typical crazy that peruses the congo, that’s all i have to say.

so happy.  a mixed tape posted tomorrow.  it’s actually one i made for a friendsie poo.

anyway, happy november night.

howlin’ for you

chaos has been unleashed if you want to know my honest opinion.  in addition to dealing with chaos head on, i am currently plagued with an ailment and can’t stop coughing or being the one who sniffles opposed to blows their nose. at this point, i’m basically over eveything i had my hopes up for, for an obvious reason which is that i could just care less. but now that i say that in all honesty, it’s bound to change at some point or another.

SPACE was so spectacular last night- the middle east (pictured above) and laura marling were both really wonderful, not to mention a most welcomed surprise from Mr. I.  i got home late, and i passed out needless to say. being as fatigued as i happened to be meant that i was obviously going to oversleep, so here i am, sitting in bio, with last night’s cat eyes fading about my eyes, hair flat and rather bed-head like, and a pair of pencil jeans with a grey t-shirt. i ran to make it in on time. you’d think it was the beginning of the year seeing how i seem to be falling into my old habits.  spring fever has officially taken control & all i want is to be celebrating summer with those who i truly care for.

enfin’s spent a grand amount of time with bela dearest & even G! it’s been much needed- girl time.  i just have to get through seven more days and i will be all set to finish the school year (even though our end date is 6.11) projects galore, and i guess i’m not putting 100% into them, but i don’t think anyone is.

the one thing i need most at this moment is a big cup of arabica’s french roast & something savory.  soon enough. this day needs to get over sooner rather than later (even though that means i have to produce 40+ note cards & a short story about the 4th dimension. i feel wonderful in regards to those items on my to-do list)

if i were you i’d listen to the middle east.

the past few days have been quite interesting… if i am being entirely honest. i don’t feel like going into details, so i’ll sort of leave it at that.  tonight i went to space and saw the low anthem and brown bird, and cried because timber timbre wasn’t there, so i couldn’t hear:

but que sera, sera. i’ve been busy with tennis, research papers, tea making, cake baking, and taking rolls of film here in portland. i’m tired to be entirely honest, but the busiest breaks are always the best in my mind. i saw beautiful bela last evening, and that was lavish. tomorrow or today, or whatever it is exactly, i have plans to go to local for brunch and then to the bike swap and then out to borders to get a few must have books that are unable to be found at YES or Cunningham.  currently listening to bob dylan on vinyl… while pondering whether or not i said the right thing. oh too bad. honesty equals prosperity, yeah? i sure hope so.

tandem bikes listen to that by the LK.

here i am. in north carolina. for the first time. ever. unless a trip to the charlotte airport counts, although, i highly doubt that it truly does.  yesterday was a long day of travel, tons of delays and bumpy skies and busy roads. but all in all, i got to durham/chapel hill an hour later than expected, in one piece.  M was at her trackmeet, but i didn’t see her throw because i was late. late. late. i suppose that should have been assumed in the first place, but what is done, is done. chick-fil-a (still can’t get over the spelling… i suppose new englanders want to add that filet in instead of the fil-a…) filled our stomachs, and i slept a good sleep, all until i was woke up early this morning to visit DA. it was a school, and that was my very impression. my only impression too. sure schools tend to differ in material, but all have the same sense of an educational establishment which one becomes familiarized with over the course of their 13 years in public edu. or private, or what have you. anyway, i read outside for sometime- something i rarely have the chance to do in maine, and that made me happy. then we ventured to a thai cafe and to m’s infamous lo-yo and we had a superb time talking. all this “update” writing is making me feel out of place. seeing as i’m currently reading catcher in the rye for the thousandth time, i feel like holden, and i am viewing everything as “phony”. its unfortunate, yeah? anyway…

o, how i’d love a party like the above. summertime is approaching! m, annie, and i will drive to the coast and eat strawberries and blackberries, and dance to k’naan and tunng and all the good summer music.  we’ll eat oranges and sip tea on the maine state pier at 5am, and we’ll build forts and go on bike rides, and take many many photos. i’m really counting on the upcoming season of liberty to be the best one yet- seeing as last year’s sucked so bad. see my nice inclusion of slang? anyway, ive sent out good energy to the deities of summer to ensure that the three of us have the best vacation of our lives thus far. parties, and friends (if we need them) and lunches and brunches and movies and music all the way.

oh hi enfin, you are as BA as its been rumored.

memoria teneo, as i have mentioned in a previous post, did in fact happen- hence the proof, first of two photos. the second, is a quaint little rue en quebec, where i found this market that four young boys in their 20s with lots of tattoos and gauges worked in. they sold me a baguette and i played fetch with their golden retriever for a brief moment until i ran up the road to get a good shot of the chateau on my trusty ricoh. i miss quebec, but i like the south too! we’re planning an allnighter (which i can say is overdue) and a fortification and perhaps a picnic and a trip to some of m’s most mentionable places en durham/c.hill/raleigh or i think i will refer to current location as RDU just like their airport. it will be nice to visit cambridge on sunday however, i haven’t visited since… february? i don’t recall any travels in march, however, it is entirely possible. a mixed tape is coming when i get back in the 617 or 207, depending on my mood and how i budget my time. i’m switching between, the crying of lot 49, V, How to Write Compelling Fiction- which i must add is quite delicious- and catcher in the rye (boring).

pynchon


lady stole my dream outfit.

do you ever get bothered by something you probably shouldn’t be bothered by? for example, this is completely hypothetical mind you, yer best friend seems to have this deep intense enjoyment of pretending to be you and pretending to live yer life? well, i get bothered by things like that quite easily. and i just did.

i’m reading gravity’s rainbow by pynchon. it’s quite good thus far, and i’m trying to savour it rather than eat right through it. last evening was so boring. i should have gone to coyle street or to space even though that’s where the hipsters go.  deertick played at space, and story played at coyle street. its unfortunate that i was too lazy to hop on ethel and ride to one of those venues. lately i’ve been feeling like i’m sans friends, which is kind of, in an odd way, refreshing. i don’t have any obligation to turn on my phone, nor do i have any obligation to log on to the f-word (facebook).  canada is in five days, which makes me pretty damn excited. other than that, my week promises to be busy. i don’t exactly want to go play tennis, but i know that i have to thus I must.  i really hate people who try to be someone they’re not.  in addition to that, i hate friends who go through other friends to get what they want and pretend they’re someone they’re not. someone who has observed the same type of behavior told me not to mind it, saying that it was a form of flattery. bullshit. i don’t care about flattery, i never have. all i know right now is that i’m in for a long day. whether or not that’s a bueno thing… we’ll see in 12 hours.  which in reality is not a long time. time. another thing i’d love to speak about. we’re racing against time, whether we define time as the moments that have passed, or the moments until the end, everyone, in one way or another, is racing against time. i wish we could just forget it, seeing as a million years ago it didn’t exist. stupid marilyn kept me up all evening, with her legs swinging and hands ticking. mocking my very existence in a way.  just to stay organized, because i check this more than i check my calender, below i’m listing my next month, so feel free to bypass it. thanks.

april 9th, 10th, 11th: quebec
april 14th through the 18th: north carolina
april 18th through the 20th: cambridge/boston
april 23rd: 70s dance party at SPACE
april 24th: low anthem & timber timbre at SPACE
may 4th: vinyl fair at Port City Music Hall

i’m ready for the highlights, i don’t know about the lowlights.

n’ameen.
oh and a mixed tape will appear shortly, within the next three days.
